The Sony 35mm f1.4 lens works pretty well on the a900 (T1.6) and not so well on the a380 (T2.2).

As for DOF, the same problem applies. The more angled rays that are lost come from the outside of the lens, so not only do you get less light you get deeper DOF. Oh well.

Sony seems perfectly happy to sell 35mm f1.4 lenses to a380n owners without warning them.

Have you read F stop blues at Dxomark?

Very worthwhile when considering the usefulness of fast lenses on a digital camera.
